Depending on how hard you were hit (sounds like either an oblique shot from the front corner or a straight shot into the fender), I'd recommend checking the front wheel hubs, the axles and seals, the CV joint (including the boot), the brake system (including the ABS mount, the rotor, and all front brake connections), the steering rack and tie rod ends, the front strut (including the strut tower, spring perches and top hats), and the front sway bar mounts and connections. I've heard of steering racks actually shearing off their mounts when hit from the side.
You many need to check your engine mounts and your exhaust connections too.

Sounds like your fender has pushed back or deformed into the front door "swing" space - that small area just behind the front fender where your door swings open and closed.

Good luck and let us know how it goes.
